Red HM

(Matthias Polzin, Germany)

Dame: Red HM PK
F1, BT051010
(Betta Territory, The Netherlands)

The Sire is cambodian-based extended red HMPK with a strong body which was bred by my friend Michel Stokkelaar. The caudal fin has a good 180 degree spread with nice long outer rays. The Dame is also cambodian-based extended red. She also has a nice broad dorsal, caudal fin and nicely short anal fin. Interesting to know is the fact that the fathers of the Sire and Dame are brothers from BT280409. The mother of the Sire is a F1 offspring of a Siamimbellis pair. The Sire became 3rd placed in the unicolor HMPK class at the EHBBC show in Duisburg 2010. With this cross I hope to fix the strong bodies, broad dorsals and quality finnage in my red HM PK line. The offspring (F2) will be cambodian based red HM PKs.

The Dame is also mother of: BT180511
